5 Reasons to help us

Make this one-off UK show spectacular

The Victoria Art Gallery will be the only place in the UK where you can see the iconic and bold posters of Bohemian Paris together - with over 80 vibrant and iconic colour posters made in the 1890s by Toulouse-Lautrec, Mucha, Steinlen and more. We want to display them from floor to ceiling, to replicate how they were displayed originally on the streets of Paris at the turn of the century.

2

A vibrant events programme

We want to programme immersive evening events unique to this exhibition which will echo the joie de vivre of the Belle Époque and Toulouse-Lautrec's Paris for you to enjoy. These will feature music and entertainment to celebrate how visual art, music & dance were intertwined in this thrilling era.

3

Get everyone involved

With your help there will be workshops for community groups including dance activities for people with dementia, printing workshops for young people with special education needs, and an opportunity for Bath carer's to help curate an element of the exhibition.

Receive something brilliant

As a thank you for your donation you can choose from a range of limited-edition rewards inspired by the Bohemian era. There is something for everyone, including an exclusive tote bag inspired by the venues at the heart of the Bohemian era and some truly exclusive experiences: private tours, late night events, invitations to the private view and a decadent champagne afternoon tea.

5

Do something different

We want to make this our biggest exhibition yet and transport people to this era. We also want to make sure everyone can take part and so we want to make a multilingual audio guide which includes music from the era and a BSL option as well as show film about lithography and the era. Personalia from the performers and a dressing up area will allow you to get a feel of what it was like to be a performer or artist in the Moulin Rouge. Two exhibition trails will be designed to allow people to fully explore the language and imagery in the posters on show.

Every single donation will help people step into Toulouse-Lautrec's Parisian world. Thank you to everyone who has already given and helped us reach 25% of our target in the first week. We’d love if you could help us even more by sharing these reasons with your family, friends and networks.
